Judah Friedlander appears at Politics & Prose on Monday, November 30, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign his new book of cartoons!
A stand-up comic and actor, Friedlander appeared in American Splendor and is best known for his work in 30 Rock. But he’s not just a multi-talented performer—Friedlander has written the karate primer, How to Beat Up Anybody, and he’s been drawing since he was a child. This collection of artwork and cartoons showcases the visual side of Friedlander’s wit and humor as he takes subjects both serious and silly to new heights of absurdity.

Actor/author Ethan Hawke appears at Powell’s City of Books on Monday, November 16, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign RULES FOR A KNIGHT!
Drawing on the ancient teachings of Eastern and Western philosophy and religion, on literature and poetry, and on the great spiritual and political writings of our time, four-time Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke’s Rules for a Knight (Knopf) is a parable with the appeal of Arthurian legend, the economy of Aesop, and the vitality, intelligence, and risk-taking that could only emanate from Hawke.

A true living legend of comedy, John Cleese co-founded the landmark British comedy troupe Monty Python and starred in classic films like A Fish Called Wanda and TV series like Fawlty Towers.
